www.ArshKhaira.com Arsh Khaira's "Blood Diamonds" is a statement to the devastation and lasting legacy of colonialism throughout the world. Politicians continue to make fools of us by commoditizing our pride and capitalizing on the emotions of communities affected by drugs, gang violence, and war - as well as other forms of cultural genocide inflicted to demoralize minority communities. The creation of nation-states based on arbitrary lines drawn by colonists dividing communities that were mutually interdependent for centuries was done with one purpose in mind - to leave future generations locked in conflict over resources and disputed territories and to divide historically interdependent ethnic and religious groups (divide and rule). Words and Music: Arsh Khaira Filmed and Edited: RADD FILMS Mixing: Terry Tran Mastering: Howie Weinberg Check out www.arshkhaira.com for more content! Blood Diamonds You rewrite the pages of all that went down, We can't state the facts, 'cause that's not allowed. Can't feed the hungry with all your lies, Drugs are your weapon in this genocide. You've taken the lion's share of their pride, So we'll cast our votes for only your side. Losing their rights, I'm losing my mind, Can't break the chains you've tied on so tight. All the lies they're telling you Straight to your face You believe it all There's no place for the truth In this game of black hearts They're watching you fall I'm ready to believe All's not lost and someday they will see It's not enough for me Drag you down and keep you from your dreams It's all for the taking, So quick in your act, Stealing the clothes right off of their backs. I couldn't help but forget the truth, Just like it was told in yesterday's news. All the lies they're telling you Straight to your face You believe it all There's no place for the truth In this game of black hearts They're watching you fall I'm ready to believe All's not lost and someday they will see It's not enough for me Drag you down and keep you from your dreams Your opium wars and fake nationhood, Blood diamonds, they just look so good. Post-partition stress disorder, Bodies divided at your border. I'm ready to believe All's not lost and someday they will see It's not enough for me Drag you down and keep you from your dreams
